The Kabbs – Skater-Friendly Garage Rock from San Diego

The Kabbs, a melodic, garage rock quartet from San Diego, have just released their second EP, which is currently available for free on their Bandcamp site. The EP’s three tunes are unadorned, skater-friendly slices of power-pop with attitude. There’s even a nod to Brian Jonestown-like psychedelica thrown in here and there to keep things interesting. The band plays regularly in S.D., taking the stage at the Kensington Club, El Dorado and other local haunts. The Kabbs rock the Casbah (sorry, couldn't resist) on July 21 w/ Ty Segall and the Fourth Annual Johnny Rad Fest, with the Spits, the Stalins of Sound and several other bands the last weekend of July.
